Say Hello to the Brand New Spyderco K-2 Folder

There are countless reasons why you’d want a nice small folder. They’re portable, convenient, and legal to carry openly in most places. But sometimes a small folder simply won’t cut it.

For those heavy duty tasks, the new Spyderco K-2 is your knife. Spyderco continues to make its foray into the large folders market with this hefty knife designed by Farid Mehr.

Mehr is a British custom knifemaker whose knives are known for being downright tough. His first collaboration with Spyderco continues that trend. The K-2 boasts a 4.54-inch full-flat grind blade made of CPM 10V steel. Here’s what Spyderco says about the steel: “the first high-vanadium tool steel made using Crucible steel’s Powder Metallurgy process.” The high-vanadium levels give it a much stronger wear resistance.

The blade stays in place using the dependable Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.), and the handle is made of two scales machined from solid titanium.

There’s no denying the knife is a workhorse for those bogged down with heavy duty tasks, but the MSRP is at $399 right now (that’ll be cut by at least $150 though).

You can find out more about the knife over at Spyderco’s website or get a good look at a prototype from Spydercollector from a few months back.

  1. We have read some excellent information below. Unquestionably benefit social bookmarking for returning to. I personally big surprise how much efforts you’d put to produce this sort of amazing helpful web page.

  2. I’m really not sure how I feel about this one, on one hand you get a killer steel (CPM 10V) on the other hand the ergonomics look a bit angular (to me) and I forsee hotspots developing in prolonged use.

    Not sure if I will snap that one up, I wish they used the Slyz Bowie design with that steel- pretty much perfect in my opinion.
